Es el numero uno.

Suena como mariposas,

como la naturaleza,

como mucha dulzura.

Es el viento.

Es como el color rosado,

como puntos rosados,

chiquitas mariposas.

Y como hablo en vos baja.

Se siente libre.

Como estas corriendo afuera en la naturaleza,

y el viento soplando,

sobre ti

hermosos colores de blanco,

y arco iris todas partes.

Suena como el sonido de la naturaleza

como toda esta en silencio

Es como

querer animals i la naturaleza

querer nadir,

querer dibujar,

y escribir.

It is the number one.

It sound like butterflies,

like nature,

like sweetness.

It sounds like kindness

and wind.

It is the color pink,

like pink dots and,

little pink butterflies.

It means how I talk

in a whisper.

It feels free.

It’s like you’re running outside

in nature,

the wind blowing

on your beautiful colors of white,

and rainbows all around.

It sounds like nature’s sound,

peace, quiet.

It loves animals and nature,

loves to swim,

loves to draw,

loves to write.
